1st Leigh Scout 1970 – 2020
In 1970 1st Leigh Cub Scouts were formed to allow young people in Leigh Sinton and the surrounding villages to get together and learn new things, make new friends and develop as individuals. This was closely followed by the forming of the Scout section, then the Venture Scout section and then the Beaver Colony. Over the years, age ranges have changed, Ventures were renamed Explorer Scout, uniforms changed, the Group moved from their first meetings in Leigh Sinton School to purchasing their own Scout Hut which was remodelled, and remodelled again, to suit the changing needs of the Group. The one thing that never changed was the dedication of the Leaders in their aims to develop young people and it has always been a pleasure to see an ex scout who is now a doctor, soldier, vet, teacher, nurse, the owner of their own business…. the list goes on.
On Saturday 12th September 2020, we will be celebrating our 50th year as a successful Scout Group and all Beavers/Cubs/Scouts/Explorers/ex Scouts/Leaders/Parents/interested parties are invited to come to a day of activities and memories held at Leigh and Bransford Village Hall.
More details will follow but we are eager to have ex members contact us with old pictures/memories that we can borrow or copy to use on the day.
If you have anything you are able to contribute, please contact me by
or phone 01886 884277
